The Many Of Horror rocker has chopped off his locks and debuted his new summer hair do.

Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil has shocked fans by returning to a short cropped hairstyle.

The Biffy Clyro frontman took to the band's official Facebook Page to tease he'd had a dramatic new look by posting an image which saw him holding his plaited pony tail in his outstretched hand on Sunday (6 May).

It came with the caption: "Who’s the hippy now?x" which is a reference to the band's Whorses song- taken from their 2009 Only Revolutions album.
